A discussion paper has been prepared based on what the government has heard from Indigenous peoples, key stakeholders, internal experts, opinion leaders, and the public. It highlights some of the science and policy opportunities the eventual watershed security strategy may explore.
Furthermore, during the engagement period, we shared information posts on:
- Water and reconciliation
- Governance, management and policy
- Watershed knowledge and data
- Re-setting the water supply and demand relationship
- Water reallocation
- Healthy aquatic ecosystems
What is the timeline?
Feedback was welcomed on the discussion paper between January 25 and March 18, 2022 at 4 PM through a feedback form and written submissions.
What is government doing with the feedback?
Government will use the feedback from this engagement to help develop options for the Watershed Security Strategy and Fund. A draft Watershed Security Strategy will be released for a second period of engagement in fall 2022.
